Kurt's Bachelor Cooking
#67
I make my low carb pizza crust using ground chicken, cheese and spinach.  It usually turns out really good. Wrote:I used the bread recipe above "as is" for pizza dough once before. It was OK but was "too bready" tasting, so I tried something a little different this time.

I cut the yeast to 2 teaspoons and instead of salt I used garlic salt and added some italian seasoning to the flout.

I'v read about xanthum gum which is used to make pizza and french bread more "chewey" but I didn't have any. So I googled "xanthum gum substitute" and saw a site that said you could use plain gelatin instead. So I added a teaspoon of gelatin to the flour.

I used the bread machine on the "dough" cycle to knead and rise the dough.

Then I used a rolling pin for the dough. I noticed this time it seemed to shring back a lot more this time as I rolled it and it took more rolling to get it to the right size and thickness.

I baked it at 425f for about 14 mins.

It was really good! The gelatin really made a noticable difference in the crust. BTW the pic below uses a 16 inch pizza pan and there was enough dough to also make another smaller pizza using a baking sheet. I need some work on shaping the pizza into a better circle but I'm more into taste than looks. Smile

Now if you can show me how to make homemade show polish, I will be able to "Rise and Shine". Wrote:

I started this a couple of days ago to see how it goes. I didn't notice at first but this is actually sourdough starter. After some research, I think this is how to adapt my bread recipe above to use sourdough starter instead of store bought yeast. Bascially you substitute a cup of starter in place of the yeast/

Since the cup of starter is half water and half flour, you need to take out half a cup of water and half a cup of flour from the recipe. It also needs to rise for a lot longer, for 4 hours. So I'll use the dough cycle on my machine then take it out and put it on a baking sheet to let it rise longer.

Adjusted recipe for home made sourdough bread:
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar (honey/brown sugar, etc)
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Use dough cycle
Take out the bread and shape it on a baking sheet
Let rise for 4 more hours.

Add a pan of water to the oven and bake at 425 for about 40 minutes (I think).

I'll try this in a few days and let you know...
